Unseasonably Warm Weather Brings Allergies Ahead of Schedule

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - It was another gorgeous weekend here in central Arkansas... and if you were able to take advantage of the good weather, you may have seen all of the budding flowers and trees, months ahead of schedule.

While it's pretty, it is affecting those suffering from allergies, and allergists say it will depend on our Spring weather as to how long it will last.

"If it stays dry, we'll get a lot of pollen and not a lot of relief, but it might go away more quickly that way," Dr. Jim Ingram, Physician at Little Rock Allergy and Asthma Clinic, said. 

The normal time for budding wouldn't typically happen until mid-March. So the sneezing and runny noses, along with those flowers, are a month early.
